Tyre Fitment Centre Strood
When it comes to tyres, Elite Garages Strood knows best as the team is experienced and knowledgeable. Plus, they have a large selection of budget tyres, mid-range tyres and premium tyres at great prices, including brands like Bridgestone, Goodyear, Michelin and Rapids. We always consult with the customer and offer advice on the best tyre based on their unique driving requirements and budget.
For example, if you only travel a short distance around town, budget tyres are usually fine but not if you’re driving long distances at high speeds on the motorway. In this case, you are better off getting mid-range or premium tyres as they typically last longer and provide more grip. They will also explain the risks of part-worn tyres as this question does come up from time to time. The truth is, they are not very safe as you don’t know how they were driven on before.

We never fit part worn tyres and always encourage customers to avoid fitting part worn tyres at all costs. There are many safety concerns and they really are not any cheaper than economy tyres in the long run. Here is a good article about why part-worns offer a false economy.
